I have the same stalling issue in reverse with a Dodge Ram 1500. I have been researching online forums and read about stalling occurring because of a clogged or bad transmission cooling radiator. I am going to remove the lines into and out and splice a connector hose and test my reverse to see if mine is failed. I have replaced my solenoid pack, both tranny filters, air intake control, throttle positioning sensor, can positioning sensor, crankshaft positioning sensor, transmission pressure sensor, canister purge sensor. Still searching for the problem .

It sounds to me like you have an internal vacuum leak in your transmission.

My 1996 Ford F150 Super Cab wont start without stepping on the gas pedal and when you put it into gear it dies..please help!!

I would check your fuel pressure at the motor on the fuel rail see if you are getting enough pressure. The fuel filter might be getting plugged causing lack of fuel. If it seems to get enough fuel just won't stay at the proper rpm throttle positioning sensor on the intake might not be working properly.
